UPDATE: Body of 9 Year old Boy Pulled From Buck Creek in Springfield
SPRINGFIELD -- After three hours of frantically searching Buck Creek, rescuers recovered the body of nine year old Colin Jenkins Monday.
A mother's ultimate pain: losing her child unexpectedly.
Colin was out on the water behind Carleton Davidson Stadium on Mitchell boulevard with his uncle and three brothers. Officials say the boys were sliding down a moss-covered dam into rolling water.
At the end of that low head dam the water turns over on itself, and if you get caught up in that you can't get out, Springfield Fire Captain Pat Casey explained Monday.
Officials say if Colin had been under water for even just 10 minutes, his chances of survival would've been slim.
Collin couldn't swim, but Captain Casey says even experienced swimmers are at risk.
Regardless of how good a swimmer you are, you can't get out. Even at this low current. It's very hazardous, Casey added solemnly. Its very unfortuante that this particular location is out of sight from everybody, so it's very hard to regulate restrictions in this area.
Safety officials depend on 'No Swiming' signs to deter people from braving the volatile waters.
It's not adventure you'll find in this water, but tragedy.
A very bad day all around. For the family and firefighters. The hardest part of our day is when we have the loss of a child, Casey added.
Officials say it's still unclear, but possible, that Collin's uncle could be charged as a result of his death.
SPRINGFIELD -- The search for a missing boy is over in Buck Creek.
Police pulled the 9 year old's body out from the water just after 4:00pm Monday.
The frantic 3 hour search that had the worst possible ending for the family of 9 year old Collin Jenkins.
Fire officials tell us Collin was swimming with his 3 other brothers and uncle.
We're told they were sliding down a moss covered dam into the 6 feet of rolling water. On Collins turn the current took him under.
Officials say no one should be swimming in this water.
The fact that if you get caught up in the undertow, it will not let you out. That's what happened with this nine yr old boy. He wasn't able to get out, Springfield Fire Department Captain Pat Casey said solemnly Monday.
Dive teams found Collin six feet under water, near the left bank where he was last seen.
Collin was set to start the 4th grade at Lincoln Elementary in Springfield on Wednesday.
UPDATE: SPRINGFIELD -- The Springfield fire chief says the body of a missing 9 year old boy has been pulled from Buck Creek. According to a 911 call made by Collin's mother,just before 3pm, the boy was swimming with an uncle and his three brothers, when he went under water and did not come back up.
Rescue crews were sent to the area of water under a bridge and near some baseball fields to search for the boy. They found his body about 90 minutes later.
HAPPENING NOW: SPRINGFIELD - A search of Buck Creek near the Carleton Davidson Stadium in Springfield is underway for a missing child.
The child was last seen in the water and right now it's not known if he is still in the water or may have gotten out.
We have a crew headed to the scene and will bring you more details as they become available.
